WHILE bond notes are not a per­ma­nent so­lu­tion to our eco­nomic chal­lenges as a na­tion, they, to­gether with the in­creased use of plas­tic money, will bring some im­prove­ment. Even in emerg­ing gi­ants like In­dia, there are long bank queues due to the short­ages of the ru­pee. Thank you to the Re­serve Bank of Zim­babwe Gov­er­nor Dr John Man­gudya for com­ing up with a prac­ti­cal so­lu­tion for us. — Edgar Mauc­haza.

MANY coun­tries now use elec­tron­ics sur­veil­lance for road­blocks. This how­ever in­volves lots of money in set­ting up the com­puter sys­tem, the routers to en­sure co­or­di­nated re­sponse around the coun­try, the gen­er­a­tion of the ve­hi­cle data­base, the reg­is­tra­tion of all li­censed driv­ers, the re­peated dis­sem­i­na­tion of the sys­tem to var­i­ous po­lice es­tab­lish­ments around the coun­try, the train­ing of the of­fi­cers to use the sys­tem, the backup re­quire­ments and the ser­vices/re­pairs which go with that. I hope that it will be done with due care for it to be ef­fec­tive. — Tawana Ru­pasa. RIP Pres­i­dent Fidel Cas­tro. He was a man who was com­mit­ted to the development of African coun­tries and for this we should be eter­nally grate­ful. Let us also re­mem­ber to fo­cus on our development and be self­suf­fi­cient as Cuba is. — Ton­derai Moyo.

THERE are evil peo­ple out there who cause un­told suf­fer­ing to in­no­cent vic­tims with what is be­lieved to be juju. Families are los­ing their loved ones but the per­cep­tion re­mains it does not ex­ist. Per­haps the Gov­ern­ment should set up a com­mis­sion to in­ves­ti­gate tra­di­tional is­sues with a view of in­putting it into law. Deny­ing it out­right does not bode well for those who be­lieve in it. — Brian Dube

RIP to the Brazil­ian team which died in a plane crash. A sad day for sport and for all those who lost their lives. — R Ni­chols
